Highlight of trip

My 10-year-old and I loved this experience. It was one of the highlights of our trip from NYC to Tokyo! A great mix of history, fun, laughs, and cardio.

Kenshi was fantastic, meeting up and getting to the gym was a breeze, a fabulous experience all around
Fun kendo experience
AlexanderM4446, 03-01-2023
This is so much fun. I was lucky to receive instructions directly from a 7th Dan kando master, Imazu Sensei. With absolutely no prior kendo experience, Sensai Imazu is so kind and patience with me and teach me how to bow and how to stand from the beginning. During the lesson, not only I have standing target practices with wooden dummy, at the end of the lesson, Sensai allows me to practice real fighting with rest of his students. This is so much fun for all who want to truly experience Japanese culture.
What a blast. Don’t miss this opportunity.

Literally the best activity in Tokyo. Do not miss this opportunity for fun. It’s real martial arts but they make it incredibly fun.
Amazing family experience

This was such a fun thing to do. Our family of four all loved it, my 13 year old daughter in particular thought it was hilarious being able to dual with her parents. A memorable and special memory to have of our time in Japan. Our Sensei was very patient and he made it very enjoyable.
